Title: Free Pussy Riot
Post by: Nick on May 03, 2012, 01:44:01 PM
Looks like the spirit of punk rock is alive & kicking in Russia. Two young mothers are facing 7 years in jail for protesting about injustice.
FREE PUSSY RIOT!

If any one is interested in helping our Russian comrades, Amnesty International has drafted a letter. All you need to do is fill in your details.

Gets worse for Pussy Riot:

Three members of a feminist punk band arrested for singing a protest song in Moscow's main Orthodox church must remain in custody, a court ruled yesterday.

The trio, part of a collective called Pussy Riot, were told they would be kept in detention for a further six months, until at least 12 January. The case involving Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Ekaterina Samutsevich, 29, has split Russian society. The women have been in prison since they were arrested in February for performing an impromptu rendition of a song "Blessed Virgin, Mother Mary, Drive Putin Out!".

...............a lawyer for one of the cathedral guards, who claims to have been a "victim" of the women's alleged hooliganism, accused Pussy Riot of being supported by the same "Satanic forces" that carried out the 11 September terrorist attack in New York in 2001.

On "Chris Evans show" this morning (I know..  sackcloth & ashes time (again!))  on the "God-Spot" it was Diane Louise Jordan (ex Blue Peter!!). she mentioned an article that she read over the weekend about Pussy Riot.  she said that the article was accompanied by a cartoon which read  "Not in my name!"  now that would make a good title for a song...

Quote
Whilst the amnesty granted to the two imprisoned members of Pussy Riot—Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Mariya Alekhina—is to be welcomed, we must view it for what it is: a political stunt by the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin.

Very true.

The rest of Pussy Riot say these two are no longer in Pussy Riot.
These two say they ARE Pussy Riot and the rest are sell-outs.

Well Gabumon, I must admit the news footage I saw on TV was more violent than the shots they used in the video but I guess they pushed it out quickly with the film they managed to get themselves, and its difficult to video when you are being whipped...

I saw Bands doing way more painful things as this. There are already companies that make videos go viral like this one goes.

I am quite glad that I like music instead of videos. I do watch some from time to time (especially when someone releases a new video/single), but sometimes I just listen instead of watching the film...
